Looks like a typical Germanwings-flight, thanks for sharing. How much did you pay for the souvenier?

Thanks. I've paid 9'90 €uro.

I've never flew with Germanwings (and, also, this was my first experience with Eurowings) and I must say that I've enjoyed it a lot.

I have lots of trip reports like this one (I mean, different routes). I'll be posting them here 1 or 2 per week as I don't want to flood the forum with my threads. Hope you don't have any problem with that.

And last year it was Germanwings operated by Eurowings. Hard to figure out all of this. I'm sure there are people at Lufthansa HQ that can easily explain the logic but to the average traveller it's somewhat confusing.

LufthansaWings is solid and the SMART-fare is fine. Not sure I'd pay for it myself but seats in the forward part of the cabin and the small bag is certainly worth something.

I always do. The legroom is much better and I normally need a checked bag. I donīt pay for the best Tarif, itīs chi chi. Like the new European Business Class by Air Berlin. Overpriced and 80 % useless.....

Completely agree. As soon as you want to select a seat or a checked bag, the Smart fare it's your best option.

Rome-Fiumicino to Vienna with Eurowings (LH Low Cost Airline)

Here is the trip report of my flight from ROME-FCO to VIENNA on an brand new EUROWINGS Airbus A320-214 Sharklets (just 2 months old).


Miniature of the video

LINK TO THE VIDEO:



As you already know, all my video trip-reports have a maximum duration of 10-12 minutes, so they are very dynamic and well edited in 4K quality (also 1080p). They have lots of comments both in english and spanish. You won't have to skip parts, as each video is made of around 80-90 different clips. Just sit back, relax and enjoy it! Give them a chance!!



Here we have some pics of the video:


Arriving at Rome-Fiumicino airport



Boarding area at Fiumicino airport



Our A320SL (it was the same that took us 4 before to Rome)



Taxiing to the take off runway at FCO



Take off from Rome-Fiumicino



Snack and drink service (included with the Smart fare)



Flying over Croatia



Approaching runway 34 (I)



Approaching runway 34 (II)



Final approach to runway 34



Our A320SL at Vienna airport

I hope you will enjoy the video and wish you a great week!

Again, you reached the maximum when it comes to a short haul flight in Y. Sometimes People ask why we donīt have good reports about Y-flight, this report is an example that you can find very good Y reports on FT^

Wow! Thanks a lot! Seems that you enjoyed it! It's always a pleasure to read comments like this one.

For good or for bad, I always fly in Economy class (Since 1 month ago I can enter in some Business Lounges with my Frequent Traveller card, but just that). I'll continue uploading some reports here.

This saturday I'll post 1 from Venice to Frankfurt-Main with Lufthansa.

Off-topic: Actually, I'm starting my studies on a pilot school so I hope that in 2 years I'll be flying on the row 0. hehe
